YouTubers are understandably terrified after this change to the Terms of Service – BGR
YouTube, which has already sent many channel creators scrambling in the wake of the so-called "Adpocalypse," just gave creators yet another reason to worry that the income they get from the platform could be disrupted or even eliminated at any moment.
The "Adpocalypse" is the term laced with a bit of black humor that many of those creators already use to refer to YouTube's demonetization of their channels, which for those this has happened to prevents the inclusion of paid ads in their videos. YouTube has been accused of pursuing this trend inside of a black box, sometimes with little to no visibility into why this happens and who it happens to. Meanwhile, a Terms of Service update along these lines has given creators yet another reason to worry.
The new ToS goes into effect on December 10, and the clause that people are worried about is the following. It states that: "YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if Yo...

Facebook is introducing an all-new brand today. Here’s why – Fast Company
One of the world’s most recognizable companies, Facebook has spent almost a year devising a new corporate identity.
Facebook used to be a website. Then it became an app. But even as the company rapidly expanded, it made sense to keep calling it “Facebook.” Then Facebook started buying other companies and apps, like WhatsApp and Instagram. It acquired its own virtual reality division with Oculus. It announced its own cryptocurrency with all sorts of partners in the banking industry. All of a sudden, Facebook stood for a lot more than an app. Yet, awkwardly, it was still the name of an app...

Disney+ launch lineup: Here’s the jaw-dropping list of every show and movie coming to Disney+ – BGR
Holy. Moly. That's pretty much all anyone could say when the Disney+ account on Twitter was finished tweeting out a complete list of every single movie and TV show that will be available on the hotly anticipated new streaming service at launch.

Actually, it's only $4.72 if you hurry and take advantage of the insane Founders Circle deal that's running right now...

JJ Abrams and Bad Robot Sign Mega TV and Film Deal With WarnerMedia – The Wrap
WarnerMedia has finalized its massive film and TV deal with J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company.
The deal gives the media powerhouse exclusive rights to any film, TV show, video game, and streaming content from Abrams’ Bad Robot outfit. WarnerMedia did not disclose financial terms of the deal.
The wide-ranging agreement begins immediately — meaning that Abrams will exit his film deal with Paramount — and runs through at least 2024. Bad Robot will fulfill any existing obligations with Paramount, including the seventh “Mission Impossible” film, and Abrams is directing and producing Disney’s upcoming “Star Wars” film, “The Rise of Skywalker.”
The deal gives WarnerMedia a major producer in its stead while it preps the launch of its streaming service, HBO Max, which will be out next spring. WarnerMedia will give more details about the upcoming service at its investor day on Oct. 29. Bad Robot, run by Abrams and his wif ...

Le keynote en direct sur YouTube : 1,8 million de spectateurs – MacGeneration
Apple propose à tous ceux qui ont raté le keynote, ou qui veulent le vivre et le revivre encore, de le regarder à l'envi sur YouTube.
Pour la toute première fois, le constructeur proposait également une retransmission en direct de l'événement sur YouTube. Dix minutes avant le lancement de la diffusion, ils étaient environ 500 000 à se presser devant la vidéo ; à son pic, la retransmission atteignait 1,875 million de spectateurs. Et c'est sans compter tous ceux qui suivaient le keynote depuis le site web d'Apple ou l'Apple TV.
Pour l'occasion, le constructeur avait fait pas mal de tapage autour de cette diffusion sur YouTube, avec des pubs pre-roll dans toutes les langues possibles. Pour donner un ordre de grandeur, le lancement du Falcon Heavy de SpaceX avait... Lire la suite sur MacGeneration...

The ‘Downton Abbey’ movie is the horniest PG-rated film ever – Mashable
As we close out the decade, only one beloved TV show of the 2010s has achieved the elusive, hallowed achievement of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie: Downton Abbey.
From creator Julian Fellowes (who wrote nearly every Downton episode), the film is a thin excuse to reunite us with the likes of Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes (Jim Carter and Phyllis Logan), to delight in the mutual bullying of sisters Mary and Edith (Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael), and to cackle at the merciless roasts of the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith).
The entire premise was revealed in the trailer: The King and Queen of England are coming to Downton, and both upstairs and downstairs must curb their giddy patriotism long enough to uphold the social ceremony by which they live. It's essentially an episode of Downton and plays out as such...

Netflix is targeting a huge new audience with its next big content push – BGR
Netflix is eating up an increasingly large share of entertainment consumption time for Americans, who now have more choices than ever about what to binge. Much of users' favorite content on the platform is increasingly courtesy of Netflix itself -- we all know the service, for example, as the home of original series like Stranger Things, Narcos and Ozark, plus a slew of Netflix-commissioned foreign fare as well as Netflix original movies like Triple Frontier and Always Be My Maybe.
Even so, the streamer's appetite for eventually replacing TV for everyone extends far beyond merely adults like you. The next big content push includes a slate of original programming Netflix unveiled on Monday that's aimed at a whole different audience -- preschoolers.
As part of the announcement, Netflix released descriptions of seven new series coming from respected Hollywood creative talent that will target children between the ages of 2 and 6. The slate runs a gamut from educational programming to ...

Exclusive data predicted Netflix’s weakness in key markets before its huge subscriber miss, and could hold clues about future growth (NFLX) – Silicon Alley
Netflix posted weaker than expected subscriber growth all around the world during the second quarter.
While the company didn't dive into detail about regions outside of the US, third-party data hints at where Netflix may have stumbled the most during the period, including in Brazil and India, two important markets.
Price hikes and increased competition could be two factors that hurt Netflix.
Click here for more BI Prime stories.
Netflix posted one of the worst subscriber-growth misses in its history during the second quarter, losing subscribers in the US and adding just 2.7 million globally.
The company blamed the weak quarter on a slate of original TV series and movies that didn't draw in as many subscribers as anticipated and seasonality, as well as price increases that hit some users around the world during the quarter.
"Our missed forecast was across all regions, but slightly more so in regions with price increase," the company said, in a letter to shareholders on Wednesday...

Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide • Week Of 6/9/2019 – Tubefilter
It's another weekly installment of the Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and T-Series is yet again at the top.
T-Series is in first place for the third week running, though it's showing at least some signs that at least one channel could replace it at some point int he not-so-distant future.
The Indian music record label and film production company took a 7% hit in its weekly view count to drop down to a still almost inconceivable 630.4 million views. Not too far behind at just shy of 611 million views is the US-based child-friendly Cocomelon - Nursery Rhymes.
In the #3 spot is SET India. The YouTube home for Sony Entertainment Television's Indian iteration was up 5% to amass just about 347.6 million views during the week. In a close fourth place is Vlad and Nikita. The once Russian and now American family vlog channel jumped up 10% to take home over 335.2 million views...
